  • Do I have time to smoking between flight
    Jun 10, 2013
    3
    I am arriving 6/20/2013 at 727am from Orlando and have connecting flight to Killeen, TX leaving at 844am?

     

    If your first flight is on-time you could take the "long route" between Terminal C where your Orlando flight will arrive and Terminal A or B where your Killeen flight will depart by going outside security and outside to smoke, then taking the Intra-Terminal Train which runs outside security to your next terminal, instead of taking the TerminaLink train, which runs inside security. I only recommend this if your first flight get in on-time.

     

    Thank you, where do I get info on intra terminal train?

     

    It runs under ground between the terminals. The airport's map shows it better - http://www.fly2houston.com/iah-terminalMaps you can also google it to get more info.

     

  • Enough time for International connect?
    Apr 24, 2013

    We will be traveling from Istanbul, Turkey to Dallas, TX on May 7, 2013 (Friday) with connection in IAH. I am an American citizen but my wife is not (greencard). Our US born daughter (16 months old) will also be traveling with us. Will 1 hour and 45 minutes between flights be enough to clear customs and get from Terminal D to Terminal A to make our connecting flight to Dallas? Also, Orbitz states that the flight from Istanbul will also land in Terminal A, is it possible since Terminal A is not international? Thank you very much in advance!

     

  • Best Place to meet -Terminals A and D

    Hello, my mother is arriving at terminal A from Miami and I am arriving at Terminal D from Qatar at almost the same time (10 min difference). Can you recommend me the best place to meet for her and I? We need to take the same taxi to the hotel. Thank you!

     

    At IAH, on your arrival at Terminal D, you will be directed to the international arrivals building, where you go through customs & take escalator down Baggage Claim Level 1 and from there to Exit Control, then enter to the right the baggage recheck area; then go straight out to the International Arrivals Lobby & Passenger Greeting Area. Have your mother, on arrival, take the inter-terminal train which runs below ground and connects TA, TB, Hotel, TC, D/E outside of security. At T/E she should follow signs to International Arrivals Lobby.

    I will be on united express from tucson arriving in terminal B flying out of terminal D on lufthansa. I have about a 5 hour layover. Is it difficult to get to terminal E from D considering E has more things to eat, drink, and shop

     

    While the above-ground TerminaLink train at IAH, which starts its service at the Terminal A station, connects terminals A, B, C, D/E inside security, the Inter-Terminal Train below-ground connects A, B, Hotel, C, D/E outside security.

     

  • Conoco Phillips Terminal?
    Feb 13, 2013

    I'm picking up my boyfriend as a surprise but don't know which terminal to pick him up in if he's flying with the Conoco Phillips Private Jet. Anyone know?

     

    Private jets arrive at the FBO, (fixed base operator) - not at any terminal.

    My parents and I are arriving at same gate, almost same time from another flight where is the best point to meet them my flight is UA1015 fron camcun theirs is UA1089 from mexico city jan 29/ 13

     

    If IAH is your last stop, I suggest you meet them at the baggage claim carousel. If you continue your journey, look at overhead screens for your party's arrival gate and meet them there.

     

    Since you're both on international flights they won't want you hanging out around the corridors from the gates prior to immigration. Go through immigration and meet them on the other side.

  • Immigration

    Im flying from LHR to IAH to catch a connection flight to LIT in May. I was just wondering if 2hrs 35mins is enough time to clear immigration and to catch my next flight.

     

    1. As you did not indicate which airline you arrive at & depart from, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/ then click on 'Terminal Map' under QUICK LINKS and scroll down to the detailed text. 2. Make sure your first airline will transfer bags to your connecting airline - if not, you need to check in your bag at the departure terminal's airline counter. Either way, you have plenty of time for transfer.

     

    Im Flying with UA both Depart & Arrival. I will be classed as an Alien but do you reckon thats still enough time ? I always get paranoid when flying alone.

    My daughter flight out on Delta 9387 from Houston IAH to Amtersdam on 12/29/2012. What terminal she need to check in?

     

    At IAH, Del uses Terminal A (gates 1-15 & 17-30 at either side of the gate area.)

    I am picking up someone who is flying an international flight. Is there a place to park and go in? How long does it take to go through customs?

     

    For customs work take at least 2 to 3 hrs in hand, and place is available for parking.

     

    Does "in hand" mean it takes two to three hours after you land to clear customs? Is the waiting area at terminal C or E?

     

  • From BZE to YEG w/ stop in IAH

    I'm going from Belize to Edmonton Canada with a 3 hour layover in IAH. I was wondering if I have to clear US customs upon arrival in IAH and again in YEG. And if so is 3 hours enough time to get between terminals? Flying Air Canada and United

     

    As I do not know which airline you arrive at & depart from, I suggest you open www.ifly.com/iah, click on "Terminal Map" under QUICK LINKS, then scroll down to the detailed text. Note that as an international arrival at IAH, you need to go through TSA & Customs clearance located in the International Arrivals building, accessible from both Terminals E & C. (IAH has Terminals A through E - TD being the International terminal), after customs clearance and baggage re-check, the inter-terminal train (below ground) will take you to your connecting Terminal. As YEG has a US customs agreement, I don't think you will need to go through that process again on arrival at Edmonton. 3 hours at IAH is plenty!

     

    You will have to go trough customs in Canada since the US agreement works when you come back, since you clear US Customs at Edmonton Airport but there ´s no Canadian Customs at Houston. Anyhow you wont have to reckeck your bags since its Int´l to Int´l and you should look up for ONE STOP at IAH since i believe it applies for Int´l to Int´l flight when you dont have to re check luggage.

     

  • Hotels with 24 hour airport shuttle

    Does anyone know which hotels near the airport have shuttles that run 24 hours? Thanks

     

    IAH has its own 'Airport Marriott Hotel (tel. 281-443-2310 /800-228-9290), linked to the airside of the terminals. For other options open fly2houston.com/iah-Hotels

    where do you go to pick up a passager arriving at terminal a

     

    Best place to meet at IAH, Terminal A, is on the baggage claim level, near the information desk.

     

  • getting from Term C to B

    What's the fastest way to get from Terminal C to B? Is there a walkway connection?

     

    At IAH Airport there is no walkway connection between TC & TB - you need to take the TerminaLink train which runs inside security. Follow signs.

     

    Thank for clarifying... Now, will 50 minutes work? If I get on the train from TC, will it go directly to TB or will it have to go to D, E, A, then B? Worried about connection time - if I miss it, I'm stuck in Houston for the night. Thanks again.
